Originally I wrote this song as a celebration of Christmas and as an attempt to have my own Christmas Song to exploit around that time of year. When I played to my songwriting partner Laurens, I noticed that he was not so keen to do it. It's not that it's a bad song but I just don't like Christmas was his comment. Later he came back and said what if I write a verse with some anti-Christmas sentiment then we can present it as the two sides of Christmas and we can both feel happy and true to our own feelings.
We both agreed that this would be a unique and original way of getting our Christmas greetings across.
Quite often when you collaborate with someone then something unique appears.
